Processing using Face Detection

After looking at some of the functions in the basic open cv library, I chose to experiment with face detection to implement in my interactive piece.

It has come to my attention Face detection will work better for my idea as it clearly detects a face on an image, whereas the blob detection only highlights the edges of an object by tracing the light, rather than shapes.

As shown in the example photo, Face Detection uses either an uploaded image, or the camera capture feature to detect faces in the frame.
